In PE, we did a volleyball unit where we learned how to play volleyball. Next we had a dance unit where we chose a song and dance where we made a part of it so that we don’t copy completely from the dance. Right now we are on a unit about basketball which I personally don’t really like because I don’t really like basketball generally. I am hoping to start enjoying basketball soon.
In Japanese, we are reading a story called Yamanashi. It is about a crab family talking about a legendary thing that used to be on earth. We also did the word checking where we find the meaning of a word and writing a example using the meaning of the word. We also drew a picture of the legendary thing that we thought what it was.
In this unit we learned about puppets and how to control them and make them look realistic. I learned that puppets need to have eyes and this is the main part of puppets. I also learned that when you want to show that puppets are speaking, they you need to push out the words. Puppets are very fun because you can do anythings you want with them. When you have a puppet that requires more than one person to operate it, you need to synchronise every part of the body or else the whole puppet looks unrealistic.
In science we are learning about waves right now. We learned about transverse waves and longitudinal waves. We also learned about eye parts and ear parts. I knew these things from last year, but I forgot it so this was a very good review. I also enjoyed it a lot which was good for me.
In music I played the christmas song called jingle bells boogie. I was able to perform this piece in assembly. Now we are learning about the blues. We learned that they made their songs when they wanted to show how they felt and when they communicated.
In design we made a new design for mascots with bad reputation. Some of my friends did Ronald Macdonald. I did the mascot for Burger King. I chose this mascot because he only had one expression that looked like he was going to kill someone any second. I made it so that he looks like a burger and so that it is cute. I learned that to make my design more friendly I should put a smile on the face. I also learned that these kinds of mascots need to be round because it will not make it creepy.
In humanities we learned about renaissance people and how they affected the world. I researched about Issac Newton. I made a comic of what Newton did with during his life. We also learned about how countries that gain control of other countries affected them. I researched about how Britain and Hong kong affected each other.
In this unit in math we concentrated in the pythagorus’s theorem. We learned how to find the hypothenuse of a right triangle. We learned the equation a^2+b^2=c^2. It wasn’t that complicated for me because I had already learned it at my house. It was a very good review for what I did and I also enjoyed it.
